The bonus episodes are a nice touch, and are probably some of the more enjoyable parts of the whole game. If anything, it’s nice to see Moira pick up a gun. They also fill in some story gaps, but not any seriously important ones. It’s very obvious that Capcom is leaving things open for a sequel, as I think they always will from this point onward.

And to be honest, there is a lot of sequel potential here. Resident Evil Revelations 2 was a grand experiment in episodic action game design, and for the most part it worked. I can’t particularly say I regret the time I spent with this series, nor is it anywhere near the worst Resident Evil I have played. Heck, I’d say I had more fun with Resident Evil Revelations 2 than I did with both Resident Evil 5 and 6. So now that they have seen what works and what doesn’t, I have high hopes for Resident Evil Revelations 3 or whatever else comes out in the future.

So don’t let this weak conclusion turn you off. If you already got to Episode 3, you might as well pick up this episode just to play through the ending and unlock all of Raid mode. Just be aware that Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 4 is probably the weakest episode the game has to offer.

The controls haven’t changed, and they actually shine in the fully unlocked Raid mode.

The semi decent voice acting of last episode has given way to some over the top lines that take themselves way too seriously.
